Who doesn’t love a good, sturdy toy? I was given the opportunity to review The Toy String Elephant and the Vehicle Puzzle, made by Cubbie Lee Toy Company, and let me tell you, these toys are extremely durable. I have a 17-month-old who is pretty rough on toys, so they were put to the test this week.
The vehicle puzzle is a great first puzzle. The chunkiness of the pieces really helps with the little grips of toddler hands. It’s great with helping to build the little ones fine motor skills. Underneath each piece, there’s a picture of the exact same vehicle to help with putting the puzzle back together. The vibrancy of the vehicles, against the light blue background, also helped with putting the pieces back in their spots.
Not only did my son use the pieces for the puzzle, but he also was able to take them out and play with them separately. It was almost like 2 toys in one. I have to say, from a mom’s perspective; a big plus to this puzzle is that the pieces are hard to lose! These pieces were thrown all over my living room and I was still able to find them, unlike some of his other puzzles.
Great for developing hand eye co-ordination and problem solving in children aged 1+, this puzzle is only $13.99 on Amazon with free shipping through Prime.
The Toy String Elephant is now a contender to be one of the new favorite toys in my house. Not only is it a fun toy, but by picking up the string, it also helps with building fine motor skills. It kept my son busy for almost a half hour, and to anyone who has a 1 year old, you know that is a long time!
Almost immediately after I took this wooden toy out of the box, my son grabbed it and gave it a hug and kiss. He would not put it down.Once he figured out that you could pull it, he was in awe. He used it correctly for a few minutes, and then he started to run with it.
This toy banged up against anything and everything that was in its way. I thought for sure there would be scratches or dents in the toy, but when I looked at it, there was nothing! It was still in perfectly good shape. It’s sad that I looked at the toy before my walls and table (they were also unharmed)! Mom life!
Recommended for ages 1+, the adorable elephant wooden pull along toy is available on Amazon for $12.99 with free shipping through Prime.
All in all, I give these toys 5 out of 5 stars. They are extremely durable, fun, and they help with developmental skills! They make great Christmas, birthday, or anytime gifts, and I will definitely be buying Cubbie Lee toys for my little one and future little ones.
